Ann Coulter slammed Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich on Friday, saying his past was "like being a hunchback -- you can't have two affairs and run for president."

Ann Coulter slammed Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich on Friday, saying "you can't have two affairs and run for president."

During an appearance on Fox & Friends, the staunch conservative said Gingrich was "an interesting person to talk to" but said he is "not presidential material." She noted that the former House Speaker's controversial past was "like being a hunchback."

“I think it was unbecoming of Newt Gingrich to run for President," Coulter said, according to Mediaite.

Despite his suffering campaign, Gingrich is staying positive about his presidential bid. He recently admitted that Romney "is clearly the frontrunner" but said he doubted the former Massachusetts governor's ability to earn all the delegates needed to nab the Republican nomination.

Gingrich told CNN he believed his rivals would support him should he become the GOP nominee.

"If Santorum is the nominee I will support him and Romney will support him. If Romney is the nominee, Santorum and I will support him," Gingrich said. "If I end up being the nominee, both Romney and Santorum will support me."
